I'm going to incur your wrath...iMovie is simplicity itself.
In the project view there's basically three windows - one shows your videos stored on the machine, another your 'projects':videos you've edited (stitched together) and saved, a third has tools for titling and music etc.
Simply highlight the sections you want from videos you've shot and drag into your project. iMovie joins them together automatically. You can rearrange the order, add music and titles and change how one clip fades or whatever into the next. Honest, it's very simple.
There's an Apple on-line tutorial...takes about 15 mins to go through the several steps. Give it a go before buying something else

Don't know what it's called, but would like to be able to slow down and speed up foootage at various points....might be beyond the software, but if anyone knows different?
I'd be happy to turn something like that out I take it you had the camera on a head mount strap, or was it stuck onto the Gecko? Looking at the Windows movie maker website, you can add slow motion to the edit.

On head strap ...... Will mount on either the A frame or the windscreen frame (aft helm on the Pac) I think.....

Thanks for the linky.....will have a looksy

Two film crews that we've worked with us in the past year have also used GoPro (one given to the 'celebrities' whilst snorkelling, the other used on a simple pole with a 'wildlife' docu crew....) Never saw the footage, but if it's good enough for them.....

Right, I need to go and do some work!!

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have a look one dark winter evening, when I've got bored with sticking pins in my eyes Seeing as the Mac is sat there, under the telly, all smug & mocking, in its sleek, chic, metallic oh so pretty enclosure

Looks good to me
Interesting, you seem to get more of an impression of the boat moving around using the headcam than you get when the camera is 'A' frame mounted.

I thought that too, I was getting quite queasy, just like being there. The boat was rolling about but the horizon was pretty stable. I think that's also exaggerated by the semi fisheye lens on the gopro. Can't wait to try mine out in anger, were off skiiing next week so I hope to give it a try out.

Agreed....on station we have a headcam which often goes out on the D Class and a fixed Aframe Cam on the '75.... You can be out in a stinker and the fixed cam can make it all look very sedate.... the other way around with the headcam
